Neutral Milk Hotel – In The Aeroplane Over The Sea

Today’s selection is a curiosity pick from the year 1998. We have Neutral Milk Hotel’s album “In the Aeroplane Over the Sea”. It somewhat short as it clocks in at just under 40 minutes. An interesting note is that it continues to sell well and in 1998 was that year’s sixth best selling vinyl album, ten years after its release. If you love this album and want to hear more from the the ‘hotel, you’re going to be disappointed. This was their second, and final, album. I don’t want to preconcept anyone’s notions so that’s all the info I can give.http://grooveshark.com/#/album/In+The+Aeroplane+Over+The+Sea/1099316?src=5 (note: you’ll need to add the first track “The King of Carrot Flowers Part 1” from the “show more songs option)

Record Club began in the cold, dank, snowmageddon scene that was New England of January 2011. We’re probably no different than you. We all work in cubicles, some in smaller, less private cubicles than others; that just means we have to be even sneakier about how we listen to our music. But we have to listen to our music, mostly as a way of saving our own personal sanity. Sometimes our opinions lead us to debates that may or may not be published in their entirety on this site, but I can promise you’ll at least get a glimpse of the way our minds work. The main goal is to find new music we like or find old music that we didn’t know we liked. Sometimes we succeed, sometimes it’s a total and complete disaster. After our ears have rejoiced or stopped bleeding we try something else. This is our pattern, every Tuesday and Thursday. Sometimes, when the club isn’t officially in session, just to keep everyone on their toes, we throw in a theme day. We’re beginning to run low on our original list, so please, if you have albums that you’d like us to review or themes that you’d like to see our playlist of, feel free to contribute. After all, we’re all in this together once we punch the time clock. So if you’re busy (or just plain bored) lurking in your cubicle as you read this join in. After all, life wasn’t meant to be lived staring at a computer screen. I guarantee you, it’s at least more fun when you plug the headphones in.
